A Simple Twist of Fate Reviews
This movie was very heart warming. Not a comedy as most films done by Martin. He plays a dramatic role,and it is refreshing. Loved this movie. Pulls on the heart strings. It shows you that any man can be a loving father to a child without actually being related. The little girl in this movie was so cute, and was such great little actress.
Definitely a movie to see.
Final Grade: C-
2. Family friendly entertainment
3. Steve Martins wicked humor
It's always a treat to see Steve Martin, and once in a blue moon Steve will grace your with heart and genuinely unconditional love for family values.
Every time I see this, I have a sudden desire to read Silas Marner (on which the story is based) - which, of course, I never actually get around to, but maybe one of these days. This is one of those classic early 90s comedian as serious actor films, and it works. Written and produced by Steve Martin, you can see he valued the final product. The supporting cast is outstanding, and the story is poignant and has a beautiful natural arch that few films achieve.
Overall, a steady and moving portrayal of a father-daughter bond and the twists and turns that life throws us.
